Yormas, München Pasing, I order a Large Cappuccino. Lots of other people waiting.

After a few minutes, Yormas girl shouts LARGE CAPPUCCINO! I look around, nobody is taking it. So I take it.

Out of the crowd, a frustrated shriek of disapproval. An awkward looking DB Schaffner appears, Pokemon style.

 

Disgruntled DB Schaffner: "ERRRRRRR warte! WARTE! Eigentlich ist das meine Große Cappuccino, Ich hab es bestellt bevor du überhaupt da wars! So geht das NICHT!"

Me: "Woher soll ich wissen, ob Sie etwas bestellt haben, als ich überhaupt nicht da wars? Ich hab ne Großes Cappo bestellt, jetzt ist einer fertig und keiner nimmt ihn, es wäre komisch, wenn ich ihn nicht nehmen würde, oder?"

DB Schaffner: Looks at me, furiously.

Me: "Wenn du so emotional wirst, Nimm den Cappuccino, das ist mir egal."

DB Schaffner: shakes head and Mutters under his breath, no eye contact.

Me: "Hallo?"

DB Schaffner (aggressively): "Ja hab Ich gehört!"

Me: "Dann komm her und hol deinen Kaffee."

DB Schaffner (aggressively): "Nein das will Ich jetzt nicht!"

Me: "Dann halt die klappe, bitte."

 

I feel like a lot of this country's people have a capacity to confront that far exceeds their ability to deal with confrontation.

You asked me to take several meetings with you on two topics. I do not like to meet because I think people waste time in meetings, so I doubled my normal hourly rate. You accepted, so then I had to meet you. I prepared on the two topics for six hours because I did not want to waste your time. In the meeting, you state that you never do research because you do not have the time with so many projects.

 

You're a fucking concept designer and copywriter. It is no wonder you think the work takes three times the amount of time it should. You don't research. I dread the client meeting with you.

I fucking hate Sparkasse.  They are always so nasty and strict to people in financial trouble.

 

I have no money. Not because i'm lazy but because I got completely shafted by a very big client and it takes 2-3 months to get another due to the sales cycles. I'm now at a point where I am working, and because I'm working I can't get any help, but haven't been paid yet. I can't afford rent or food. My poor boyfriend has been feeding me for weeks and can't afford to do it any longer.  I'm waiting for a very large tax rebate that's taking it's sweet fucking time. And I need to somehow buy flights to go back for my grandads funeral.  Anyway fucking Sparkasse. I have an account and credit card with them and I want to take out money from my credit card and put it into my main account so I can buy essentials. I've been putting it off because  I don't  know when I'll be able to pay it off but whatever. I discover I don't know my pin for the creditcard. Fuckity. They won't let me take out cash from the bank with ID from the credit card, only debit card. IF I HAS CASH IN THERE I WOULDNT HAVE THIS PROBLEM YOU FUCKING MORON. The woman was so unfriendly and mean about it too

 

This is the same bank that took away my overdraft when I lost my job and refused to give it back because I didn't have an income.  While I kinda get their point, the whole reason I needed the overdraft was because I didn't have a fucking income! They didn't care either, they were also pretty harsh to me then, telling its my own fault I lost my job and my problem to fix it. Like I wasn't already doing everything I could. I hate them.

 

I'm so stressed I'm struggling to work even though it's so important right now. I;ve pushed back as many creditors as I've been able to. I can't think about anything else and I'm hungry. I had two people wanting to rent out my apartment, one ghosted me and the other ended up finding somewhere else as I was waiting for the first one to respond and confirm. I just want all this to be over.

I sure would invite you over for a  meal if I were in Berlin, even with my then meager income. Is there anyway you could qualify for a top-up from the Job Center? If so, maybe you could get access to the Tafel right away to get some food. Or maybe another organization could help.

Thanks a bl00dy lot Trainline you b@stard. How kind of you to tell me that after you have cancelled my (€120) train tickets to London this f@cking weekend, that you will give me my money back some time in the next 5 days. So now I've either got to pay €350 for the same d@mn trip, or get back in the car for another weekend of driving back to England...for the second time in a week.

Oh, if any of you want a lift to London or Reading on Friday (or back Saturday) let me know...

Sat on a bee first thing this morning when I came out into the cockpit. My arse is still on fire. Great way to start the day.

 

Nudity can be dangerous.

I drove to England yesterday, stayed overnight, then picked up my son to take him to an appointment for 10.00 a.m. this morning.

We got there for 9.30 and checked in and waited, only to be told the person we were meeting wasn't in today.

That's just fucking dandy, I've only driving 400+ miles and spent two days away from home to be jerked around by you inconsiderate arseholes.

You are a spineless git. Why don't you just address the problem openly like the adult and man you are instead of resorting to silence and a sustained campaign of passive aggression? Arsehole.

The effing bloody - emphasis on bloody - menopause is preventing me from functioning at all. Just good for sitting on the pot and dripping. I dare not leave the house. Nobody tells you it is going to be this way. No I cannot go to A&E because after an hour I need the toilet and a shower head. It is dire. My bank adviser is the same and she has to get through a day at work. God knows how. And no, your damn prostates (even the gynocologist thought it was a pertinent comment) come nowhere near this one gentlemen.

Dear Krankenkasse,

Every year I tell you the same information as the year before, every year filling out every line the same as last time in exactly the same way and even using your online service for it this year for the first time and STILL you have to send me a snail mail weeks later saying that I have not submitted EXACTLY what you need which is EXACTLY the same thing as last year? Why do you make us go through this fucking farce year after year? Why not just send a mail saying gee, this is what you told us last year, has anything changed, if so, what?  Here's a suggestion if that's not good enough: JUST CROSS THE YEAR OUT FOR THE FUCKING ONE YOU GOT LAST YEAR AND PUT IN 2018.

For fuck sakes now I have to go ask the Finanzamt and ask for the paper you need because of course that same paper we do not have a copy of and they have the original in their labyrinthine files somewhere under a million others.

You want me to finish this task by 31st October.

But the input I require to start my task will not be ready by then.   In fact, the team who will deliver this will not start until end of October and are due to finish mid December (if the dates don't slip)

 

Maybe I am stupid, so could you please explain how I can finish this task before I have any input?

 

Then maybe you can explain why my 20 million previous explanations on this topic saying exactly the same thing have not been understood?

Or maybe you can explain why nothing was done about this when I brought up the problems already some 4 - 6 months ago in a bid to avoid this exact issue?  Rather than wait 4 weeks before deadline to drop this task on me.

 

 

Actually, I bet that if I done nothing and just told you that it was done that actually none of you would know any better!  So then maybe it is my fault, because I am too open and honest.

 

Of course, we have been having this exact same discussion every year for the past few years.  So why did I expect anything different?

You need to figure out that you are transparent and have not fooled anyone. You also should get right with the fact that you are not taken seriously by anyone serious.

 

If you were trying to have a laugh, you've proven yourself not funny, so no one laughed with you.

 

If you were trying to prove a point, you lack gravitas and intelligence, so your point has been and will continue to be dismissed.

 

Dress it up in any name you'd like, but try to stop proving something when it's really just you, your ideas, and your personality that everyone hates. Fix those things first.
